This class is designed to help you and your support person learn about breastfeeding your baby before birth. You will learn what to expect, especially in the early days of breastfeeding. We will teach you practices that are proven to be beneficial in establishing breastfeeding success. You will feel prepared and ready to get breastfeeding off to a good start, from your baby's very first feeding.
Lactation consult in your home includes a thorough intake, maternal history, birth history and concerns you may have. We will assess and assist you with a feeding during the consult, which will include a weight check for your infant. We will provide you with our recommendations for your personalized care plan. Consult also includes a summary to your obstetrician/midwife or baby's pediatrician. Follow-up by phone or email for 2 weeks is included to address concerns and update progress.
Follow-up visit is available to provide ongoing assessment with your lactation consultant. We will alter your customized feeding plan to reflect changes after a feeding assessment. Concerns such as weaning, pumping and returning to the work force can also be addressed in this consult for a mom and baby who are established clients.
